Visa Checkout is now available as one of the payment methods accessible through Xsolla’s Paystation solution.
Video games storefront management and billing solution leader, Xsolla today announced that Visa Checkout – Visa’s innovative online payment service – will be available for gamers all over the world. This marks a new era in the history of online game payments.
Visa Checkout is an online payment service that allows consumers to make purchases with just a few simple clicks. The user has to enter their Visa credit or debit card to the service and add shipping information (for delivery of physical goods). If the user inputs their card information once, it is saved within their account and all transactions can be approved with just a simple login/password. There is no need to provide additional payment information or even carry a physical Visa card around. There are already hundreds of merchants accepting this payment option and throughout 2015, Visa Checkout will become available in 16 new countries.
“Xsolla is proud to add Visa Checkout to our growing number of supported payment solutions. Gamers and game publishers love Visa Checkout. It’s simple, secure, reliable and easy to use. This kind of service is particularly important for the online entertainment market as gamers want faster response and immediate transactions while buying virtual goods in games. Visa Checkout will certainly become one of the most popular online payment methods.” – Vladimir Karnishin, Card Acquiring Manager at Xsolla.
While paying for in-game items or virtual goods in the most popular games supported by Xsolla, look for the Visa Checkout button in the Xsolla Paystation window for fast and easy payment. Whether using a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop, Visa Checkout works across all devices and through all Xsolla-connected games.
